AIDS didn't exist when Indonesians liberated Timor. Only when British/Aussies troops occupied Timor, the Timorese started to suffer from AIDS. Don't rape Timorese !!!
I thought AIDS spread in Timor when Indonesian timber companies set up lumber camps, which in turn brought in Indonesian prostitutes & gambling dens.

Open your President Gerald Ford and Henry Kissinger file. They're the people who persuaded and threatened Suharto to attack Timor. They are the architect of this genocide.

No one knows the future except God and His Prophets. Is Notradamus one of them ? He's a lier in my opinion.
